(FT2) Next (fake?) GF1 pictures? Will the GF1 have an external EVF?


Probably photoshopped pictures that are maybe close to the real camera?
They also claim to know the prices of the GF1, external EVF and lenses:

Kit pancakes / 99,800 yen -1,060.00 USD (EVF Set / 118,000 yen -1,254.00 USD)
Macro Kit / 109,800 yen -1,166.00 USD (EVF Set / 128,000 yen -1,359.00 USD)
Single body / 79,800 yen -847.834 USD
55,000 yen -584.347 USD EVF single / 29,800 yen -316.000USD pancake lens / macro lens only 45,000 yen -640 USD

The big surprise is that there will probably be a external EVF (not shown in any picture).

    Definitely fake pictures. I hope that’s not the pricing.

    The image is photoshopped. The grip texture on the mode dial is an exact match to the original photo we’ve seen. there’s even a flaw where the line was drawn threw the original image. The lens is all wrong. So, it’s the same photo as before, but now with a random lens on it, which is still nice to see. with all the photoshopping the leatherette grip is probably a wish, but that is what this site is all about… our dream cameras.

    love the site. keep up the good work.

    The souce blog is notorious among some Japanese digicam fans because it posts unreliable information and fake pictures again and again to get affiliate rewards.
    The blogger writes in the post that the GF1 price list is “delusion.”
    This word literally exists in the orginal Japanese text.
    This means the list is made by his/her imagination.
    So the blogger doesn’t claim that he or she knows the prices.

    I guess the kind of people who waste time creating these fabrications are the same kind of people who spend time inventing new computer viruses… sexless, useless, friendless twits whose only purpose in existing is to waste perfectly good food and oxygen.

    The biggest giveaway (for me, anyway) is the flash — it’s way too big to fit back inside the body. It’s going to have to be quite different to fit in the space available beside the lens mount. Maybe some kind of flip-up job? (As opposed to LX-style pop-up, which this image seems to be based on.)

  • The author of that site doesn’t claim to know the price; instead, he guessed that will be the price:

    a delusion; an illusion. ・ 〜にふける  be lost in wild fancies. 被害妄想  a persecution…

  • Brainkite

    that fake is way too ugly
    and the pricing is surreal

  • adessio

    actually the GF1 has the same body of the LX family.

  • anonymussssss

    GM1, it will be called

  • Godot

    The same body as the LX family? Looks to me like the styling is similar, but I don’t believe it can have the same body.

    Isn’t the LX3 too small in every dimension (w-h-d) to have enough room for the m4/3 sensor and lens mount?

  • Joachim

    To Godot: The GF1 has approximately 1 cm more in every dimension (w-h-d) than the LX3.
